Leganes hosts Sevilla in La Liga soccer action from the Estadio Municipal de Butarque on Tuesday afternoon.
Leganes come into this match in the relegation zone on 25 points in 19th place with a record of 5 wins, 10 draws and 17 losses after a 2-1 loss to Osasuna in their last match. In the defeat against Osasuna, Leganes fell behind after just 9 minutes of play, and the lead would hold going into the second half when Javier Aviles tied the game at one for Leganes five minutes after the half. The second half stayed tied most of the way, appearing headed for the score draw, but Osasuna would end up stealing the win in the sixth minute of second half stoppage time, leaving Leganes empty-handed once again. Oscar Rodriguez leads Leganes in scoring with 9 goals while Roque Mesa has a team-high 3 assists this season.
Sevilla on the other side of the coin, sit in 4th on 54 points with a record of 14 wins, 12 draws and 6 losses after a 4th straight draw in the form of a 1-1 draw with Valladolid in their last match. In the tie with Valladolid, Sevilla fell behind 25 minutes into the match and Valladolid’s lead would carry into the half until Sevilla thought they had an equalizer in the 55th. However VAR would overturn the decision after it was determined a player was offside in the buildup to the goal. Sevilla would be given a lifeline in the 83rd minute and Lucas Ocampos would score from the penalty spot to give Sevilla the tying goal they were searching for. All in all, the two sides would settle for a split at the full time whistle. Ocampos’ penalty goal gives him a team-high 12 goals on the year while Ever Banega has a team-high 6 assists this season. Tomas Vaclik is Sevilla’s top goalkeeper, conceding 0.98 goals per 90 minutes with 12 clean sheets in 31 league appearances this season.
This is a harder game to call than what the numbers would indicate, as Sevilla hasn’t been anything special in drawing four straight matches while Leganes has been up and down in their own right and it could result in them being relegated in the coming weeks. With that said, I expect this to be a tight game with neither side really wanting to make a mistake, so I’ll side with the draw as this line just feels weird to me.
